     The idea is to show it as it appeared May 24 1940 on the sand bar

   

             Lather, rinse, repeat.

Come to think of it, taxation with representation isn't so hot either.

Can we trust the government? Absolutely, just ask any native American.

Anyone who isn't confused, doesn't really understand the situation.

If women fake orgasm,what do men like to fake? relationships.

Our streets aren't safe, the food we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink isn't safe, but our underarms have complete protection.

Art..thanks..I was simply curious.

Max, many a lady during WWII put a lot of hard work doing their bit but oftentimes they are forgotten..MY Aunt M did her bit too making ammo .. while her husband was stationed in North Africa as A LAC ..(he worked on Lancs,Spitfires and many other iconic aircrafts)
I applaud your mum and all the the other ladies for their hard and sonetimes strenuous work..:clap2:

 Maru, Peter Cazenove bellied the spitfire on a sand bar off the beach of Calais, May 24th 1940.

  Maru, also you can make out the Phare de Walde light tower in the distance by the prop blade.

   Image%203_zpswcrcngif.jpg

       The circle marks the spot. Calais area, June 1940.

    Will add a HB spit to the recipe. The Hasegawa spit is in front, with the Hobby Boss behind.
